mine eyes, and yet my teeth still watred with hungar: so that my

seruice was both too whote & too cold. I melted all my meate, and 60
made onely my slumber thoughts, and so had a full head and an empty bellie. But where hast thou beene since?

Peter. With a brother of thine I thinke, for hee hath such a coate, and two brothers (as hee saith) seeking of fortunes.

Robin. Tys my brother Dicke, I prie-thee lets goe to him. 65

Raffe. Syrra, what was he dooing that hee came not with thee?

Raffe. Nay if he be both our cozens, I will bee hys great Grand-father, and Robin shall be his Vncle; but I pray thee bring vs to him

and hauing liude, to die by deceit. Art thou the sacrifice to appeaseNeptune, and satis-fie the custome, the bloodie custom, ordained for the safetie of thy Country?. I Hæbe, poore Hæbe, men will haue it so, whose forces commaund our weake natures; nay the Gods wil
